.4% of consumers are going to sign up. if you look at massachusetts during its first month -- and, mr. president, i'm sure you're aware of this being in new jersey close to massachusetts -- only 0 .3% or 123 people signed up for coverage out of the 36,000 who ultimately signed up in the first year. so let's be clear, we all wanted to see bigger numbers, but the affordable care act, member -- act numbers are four times better than what massachusetts did in its first month, and if you talk to the people of massachusetts, they love their health care plan. and our plan is based on their plan. by the way, a republican plan. hundreds of thousands have started the enrollment process, and i'm one of them. i've created an account, and i'm going to go shopping and buy my plan. but i'm taking my time because i have some time, til december. i'm going to discuss it with my husband. we're going to decide what's best for us, and we're going to sign up. you know, i think it was the secretary sebelius said this isn't like buying a toaster. this is a commitment for a year, and you have got to take your time. so don'

leader in the senate having lost his 60th vote in a special election in massachusetts that year, felt he could not pass anything. he could not achieve cloture with only 59 democrats to vote in favor of that motion for cloture. that's the reason why not one word was changed between christmas eve 2009 and the time this bill was actually passed. but if h.r. 3590, after it came back from the senate, came to the rules committee, did it come to the house under an open rule? no, it did no. it was a closed rule. we were kept out. process. it's hard to it -- kept house of the process. it's hard to -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. burgess: when a bill of this magnitude came with so little debate, so little input from the minority, yeah, we got a one-page bill before the house today. this was a 2,700-page bill that affected every man, woman, and child in this country, not just today, not just tomorrow, but for the next three decades they'll be living under this and it came under a closed rule. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reser

programs like medicare part d come and the massachusetts help reform that was obamacare's predecessor. most people tend to sign up for coverage closer deadlines, so that is what the administration hopes will vindicate them after the first month, which did not go well. host: but if the deadline is not until march, why were expectations so high to begin with? people do not have to sign up until later. guest: that is right here at march is a key deadline because it is obviously the end of a six-month enrollment period. the other date is december 15, which is when people choose plans if they want them to kick in in january. there are a lot of people losing their coverage right now and they're going to want to remain insured, and for them, the middle of december is the crucial deadline. the reason that that is tough for the administration is it comes only two weeks after the deadline, where they say they're going to have the website fix, which is the end of this month, so if they cannot have up and running, functioning enough for millions of people to actually buy their health pla
at the massachusetts rollout, the massachusetts rollout was just as meager. >> this is not about a website, this poll question, number two. president obama telling americans they could keep their health care plans. he knowingly lied. 50% of those polled in the fox poll, 40% he didn't know. >> well, we know he knew. eric cantor is touting this clip of video from the white house meeting where obama says flat out, seven or eight million people will have to lose their insurance. they knew. the white house aides debated whether he could say this and were overruled by the political people who said he had to say it to help sell the thing. "the new york times" which has been in delicious agony trying to figure out how to characterize what were in effect blatant lies by the president -- >> let me pause there. "the new york times" quote today. the split between lawmakers and the white house reflects the dilemma the president finds himself in as he seeks to follow through on last week's acknowledgement about his incorrect promise on health care coverage of t coverage. hundreds of thousands of people have receiv
. >> the fact in massachusetts, they did it. they ended up with 98.5% in that state on insurance to be fair. they started with more who are on ens. i think what a lot of people are worried about right now. i think it's a real worry. is that with so much attention on the website and obama care and does it work and doesn't it work? it just looks like a big mess. if you are young and healthy, are you going to troy to work your way through this thicket or pay your $95 or not pay it and mover on? that's the big question. >> we're very zraktd distracted, the young generation. >> i am, too. in massachusetts when it first ran, it ran through several glitches as the aca is now with one critical difference. in massachusetts, there wasn't an opposing political party trying to destroy it. >> and kill the message. >> and throw up a smokescreen that people throw their hands up. if way this was constructed, it could work. it could be an enormous benefit. >> if they sign up. a couple move news stories to get to. first of all, republican congressman trey raible will be in court -- radel, the freshman bought
at a time. " i live in massachusetts. they just got rid of all of the black american workers, i don't know if you are aware of this or [indiscernible] i am not familiar with what you're talking about. if they hire a foreign worker, they can claim them as a business expense and get them will-- and get back there wages from the government. this was in massachusetts? caller: a company came in here in 2010 and just started firing black people, two people at a time. host: that is tyrone in boston. chart -- do you ever worry that your total income will not be enough to meet your family's expensive -- expenses? in 1971, it was 8%. in 2013, it was 19%. up to 32% in 2012 forward workers -- for workers making less than $35,000. caller: thanks for c-span. i was an engineer. i am out of work 15 years. the visa, it is for six-year stay. who they think have stopped looking, we drifted into a cash society. you have to know the value of every stupid thing. books, cars, all kinds of things. when people in the neighborhood get it out of work, you get good deals and you can quadruple and triple your money. c
have seen a little bit, it is a causation a state law in massachusetts has caused a shortage of doctors haven't do with more people going to the doctors because they do have insurance. speaker even after seven years massachusetts implemented in obamacare style reform, half of the primary practices in that state remain closed to new customers and the customers who can make appointments are waiting a long time. massachusetts is still feeling those effects. it is a big problem, bigger than a glitching website. jenna: one of the things we were trying to do was reach out to the administration to see if there were any previous statements about the doctor shortage because we have heard about it before. some may say this is a good thing more people have insurance and are going to the doctors because those people who didn't have insurance went to the doctors anyways and got it a bill, doctors would never get paid because the patients can afford it. even though there is a doctor shortage potentially does that mean it will be worse off for the patients? >> they will still be seen but it will take
as senator from massachusetts. do we assume this isn't just john kerry talking? this is coming out of discussions he might have had with the kennedy family? >> i don't think we can make that assumption. i think you answered your own question which is kerry is not average joe. he is the secretary of state, former senator from massachusetts. it carries a lot of weight. to rebut his point, there is no science that shows he was hit from the right front. all the science if you read gerald posner's book which is the definitive account, shows he was hit from the back and it was the reflexive reaction that his head was forced back. the science shows that he was hit from behind with two bullets. not hit from the front. not hit from the grassy knoll but from the depository. >> may i reapply in. >> i don't want to get into an argument over right front versus back. it sounds like from the two of you, we'll never know. >> well, posner's book was publish in the 1988 and this book came out since then. >>> posner's back was ten years ago at the 40th anniversary and all the sign has shown over and
in massachusetts with fewer website problem. >> they need 7 million people signed up by the spring. president obama today was saying that he did not think that this would happen with individuals kicked off their plan. he knew some plans wouldn't meet standard but go on obama care and find better deals. if you look at what was in the federal register, if you look at president obama's own comments from the health care forumhe kn lose coverage, whether they liked it or not. can you explain, as an architect of a similar plan and somebody who helped write the affordable care act, what was supposed to happen with those 7 to 9 million americans who were going to be kicked off the plan whether or not they liked it or not? >> first of all the number's like 6 million. millions of people whose plans wouldn't qualify. the idea is if they were low income they'd be able to go into the exchange and get tax credits and they will once the website is working and they can see that. the concern people have losing plans would be offset by seeing beneficial tax credits they'd get. some people who had substandard plans w
always assumed that, based on massachusetts' experience, the initial sign up will be very slow. and in fact, no payments have to be made until december 15 for coverage on january 1. so, while we don't like the problems we had in october and fixing it in november, we do not think it will impact the timeline because we have a six- month enrollment, so we still have four months left and individuals can apply up until march. >> thank you. thank you, mr. chairman. >> now to senator robert. -- senator roberts. senator robert? >> thank you, mr. chairman. i'm going to focus, if i can, on the concerns raised by senator isakson, alexander, and the chairman, on security and privacy. we have a law, the federal information security management act, his mother f --isma. everything has to have an acronym. it requires each agency to a point a chief security officer to ensure americans private financial and identifying information is protected. and that is a big issue. secretary civilians revealed last week exchanges operating on temporary authority to operate. there is a 2012 memo from jeffrey
, kentucky, maryland, massachusetts, minnesota, nevada, new mexico, new york, oregon, rhode island, utah, vermont, and washington state. in all parts of our country, some with republican governors, some with democratic governors, but all with people who need leadership to help them find health care that they can afford. and it makes up nearly 40% of all the nation's small employers are in these states. that's who we're focused on today. we all know that the rollout of the individual insurance website has been disappointing, to say the least, but today's hearing is focused on implementing the rollout of the s.h.o.p. exchanges, which is the focus of our committee, where we had a lot of input into how this bill was designed, to emphasize the need for a better rollout, not just for individuals, but for small businesses. today, as i said, we are joined by states that accepted this challenge and responsibility to create state-based exchanges and did it well, as well as those who are having difficulty. for those states that have made the decision to operate their own s.h.o.p. marketplaces, we'r
elected to the massachusetts senate since 1790. pretty disgusting. when i was elected president of the senate in 2007, i was the first woman ever to be elected to lead the legislative body in massachusetts. and today, only 25% of our legislature consists of women. and in the senate, the number has grown to 13. this is not just a problem massachusetts. 18% of the 500 seats in congress are made up of women. there is not enough progress. we need to support women who have dreams of running for office. those of us who are female legislators have to set an example to future generations by showing that it can be done. when i was head of equal pay for equal work, i always said, and i say it today, when you go through the door some of the people here and myself opened pushed open, don't close it behind you. keep it open. the bottom line is, women deserve to be in office. not because of the fact they are women. they are just as qualified and hard-working as men. too many young women do not feel they have enough credentials to run. you heard that tonight. they resign themselves to being co
rate that experienced in massachusetts. even with all the technical problems we have had. in my state of california, nearly 400,000 people have begun applications in the first month. there will be a total of six months to sign up, this program is going to work. . these are significant signs of progress. they show us we're on our way. on our way to dramatically expanding health insurance coverage in this nation. this bill will take us backwards. i urge a no vote and i retain the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. tipton: mr. speaker, i would yield two minutes to the gentleman from oregon, mr. walden. -- mr. upton: mr. speaker, i would yield two minutes to the gentleman from oregon, mr. walden. mr. walden: i rise today for the voice of oregonians who have already received their cancellation notices. they've been told the policy that they like, that they wanted to keep they cannot have any longer. i was down in my district for eight straight days last week. 36 meetings, 12 counties, 2
the national average. for example, new hampshire was 30% above the national average. massachusetts was 43%, maine, 67%, and florida, 68%. unfortunately those living in these and many other states can expect to see higher prices once again this winter, and this is precisely why we are bringing to the floor h.r. 1900. h.r. 1900 simply would bring certainty and agency accountability to the natural gas pipeline permitting process. it would allow natural gas pipelines to be built in a safe, responsible, and timely manner. it would also make existing natural gas pipelines safer. during the legislative hearing on h.r. 1900, we heard testimony from industry of a corrosive natural gas pipeline that could not be replaced in a timely manner because an agency missed the deadline to issue a permit by nearly a year. the american people demand better than this. and so as we hear discussion and consider amendments to h.r. 1900, i want to thank once again the members of the subcommittee, the staffs, and representative pompeo for all the work on this important legislation. i respectfully reserve the balanc
at massachusetts, which under governor romney introduced health care reform plan very similar to what the president is introduced here and in their first month of enrollment only 123 people enrolled for premium paying plans in massachusetts. they had massive enrollment toward the end of the enrollment period. we always expected enrollment figures to be low. we were saying that before october 1st, obviously the website problems have made it worse but that's why we're working every day because the website is just a means to an end. the end here is getting affordable health insurance to americans who haven't had it in the past. >> the administration has called in experts from google and other tech giants to help fix the obama care website and say the site should be fixed by the end of november. >>> here is something for you to consider if you're going over open enrollment options for your health insurance. the obama administration is loosening rules covering flexible spending accounts. cnn's christine romans joins us from new york with more. good morning, clis teen. christine. >> good morning, carol.

in massachusetts and are not fun at all. but i've written two books now about the words called "alphabetter juice" and "the joy of text." i was reading a textbook of linguistics and the connection between words and meaning as arbitrary. which doesn't make any sense to me. that would mean that splurge and spit could mean the same thing. and i think that words have a lot to do -- not all, but the best words have to do with this. giving an example, how they move through your body. it has rss [bleep], so that is because there was a python body behind him. and so, okay. so it came from from the latin word to urinate. that is the literary latin word in the street latin use a different form, which is how we got our work. the etymologist went on to say that obviously this captures the sound and i said, this is my kind of work. first welcome all the best words come from the street and then they also sound like this. but then it hit me that this doesn't sound like that. it actually starts out and then it becomes a very bodily world. but that is technically more fun to read about than to talk about. so goin

of legislation. >> its modeled after romney's bill in massachusetts. that's the truth. it really is a moderate republican bill which is market based. i think in the long run it can work. there are other countries that do health insurance in the private-sector, switzerland, for example. the netherlands. massachusetts. but the bill is complicated and it's unnecessarily complicated but in its fundamental conception it can work. it will work. >> very good. coming up on "morning joe" we'll be talking about a lot more. we have san antonio mayor, fannie mae and freddie mac, david gregory, geoffrey rush. as great as that is compares with the press conference yesterday in toronto where the mayor gave his own version of i am not a crook. we're going play you what we can and we're going to bleep out the rest. first here's bill karins with the fix. >> unfortunately some people won't like their weekend forecast. things are going to get dicey in the middle of the country. chances of tornadoes. first thing this morning we have some rain to talk about coming through arkansas up through memphis. not a lot of t
our independent line in massachusetts. caller: it is interesting to hear the president's talk about progress. when i hear the word "progress," it reminds me that it is a philosophically loaded term. i am 60 years old and i see the transformation in the values in this country that are no doubt media driven. you can go back to the 70s and it is just shocking to look at shows like little house on the prairie. there was more talent and trauma ,n one hour, incredible writing then you see today. television especially today seems to be run by cools. it reflects the anti-values of media moguls. we see murderers, serial killers all over the place, as if they are next door, left and right, although at the beginning of the programs they say this is fictional. at the same time you see a glorification of the cia, the fbi, and the militarization of the police. this philosophical transformation seems to be a form of social engineering. where it all began, i do not know. think the restu of the world perceives us through the media and entertainment we send out? one of the things that is underestimat

dorchester, massachusetts. i grew up -- i understand the problem. however, i could have given him the cell phone if he called me first >> however, he did leave a message. they didn't get anyone on the line. so he may just have said i'll leave a message. >> it's a nice message. >> it was a big win for walsh. >> it's such -- it's a terrible moment i think for him on the heels of the other moment in the book where that must have been such a tremendous embarrassment. >> it does unfortunately play into the caricature which is not exactly what you want to do if you're going to run for president. >> like rick perry, joe biden will make jokes about it in his speeches for a couple months. >> he may be calling -- he will probably call a lot of random people and leave messages on purpose, i would say. >> if i were joe biden, i would go appear somewhere with marty walsh. >> all of them. gloria, john, candy, thank you so much. >>> next, a top obama administration official throws fuel on smoldering conspiracy theories. details of what john kerry says about who was behind the jfk assassination. >>> plus,
would be low in the first month because that is the historic experience here with massachusetts being the best example to look to, the lowness will be exacerbated because of the significant problems with the website and the website, obviously, was a major avenue through which people would be able to enroll. >> now the administration is expecting peaks in interest and enrollment to come in december and also in march. in december, ahead of that january 1st deadline to get insurance for folks who don't have insurance for the new year who may be losing their insurance and then also in march because that is the end of the enrollment period for obama care. that is why, that peak in december is why it's so important that the federal website for getting insurance that services 36 states is so important. you look at the numbers today, wolf, and what they show you is that there are 3 million, about 3 million calls to obama care call centers, there were 27 million unique visits to the website. you're really seeing a preference there for a lot of folks to do this on-line rather tha
